Explanation:
"O prédio possui um PÉ DIREITO alto" = "The building has a singificant amount of headroom" (i.e., the space between the ceiling and the roof is high or tall);
"As paredes são feitas de GESSO ACARTONADO" = "The walls are made of plaster board" (also known as "gypsum board" or, most popularly in the construction trade, "sheetrock"). -- Hope this helps!

Explanation:
Além de pé-direito, por vezes, este termo aparece como "altura livre" ou "vão livre", mas é a mesma coisa. É a altura que vai que vai do chão ao telhado/tecto num edifício/sala.
Já me apareceu também como "headway" e "clearance".
